Re: 392: Batman: Arkham Origins

I had a surprisingly great time with Arkham Origins. It had actual boss fights this time around and I was surprised to see C-list Batman villains like Firefly make for some pretty great set pieces. And Deathstroke always makes for an exciting fight, especially if you don't realize you accidentally t...

Re: Our next Final Fantasy podcast recording (10.8.19) - 382: Final Fantasy XII

Final Fantasy XII is an interesting game. A single player RPG with many MMORPG elements. A story more akin to the early, 2D Final Fantasys, except there's no true main character. And, like a lot of the series, it's influenced by Star Wars, now to the point of almost theft. I swear there were cities ...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

Currently working my way through DJ Hero . I deleted my original save file (from 2014) and am working through the mixes on normal (pretty much all I did on the previous save). Having quite a bit of fun. I feel if it was any more complex I'd be far worse. I haven't got the hang of scratching and usi...

Pitchfork Reviews Ocarina of Time OST

Someone shared this on the OCRemix forum, so I decided to share it here as well. I think I saw someone mention this is the first time Pitchfork has covered a video game soundtrack? Better web detectives then me can probably confirm or deny that. It's a nice love letter to an incredibly iconic soundt...

Re: Whatcha Been Playing?

I started Mass Effect 3. Mass Effect 1 was the first game I streamed from start to finish on Twitch back in 2017, so now I've been using the series as my anniversary game. I'm only two hours in (the intros never really grab me) but excited to finish this trilogy up. I most likely will not be trying...

Re: Retro gaming

For absolutely no reason whatsoever I just bought a end of generation PsOne with attached screen. Anyone got one of these and can report back on the screen quality? It comes with a charger that plugs into the lighter socket in the car so will play all those old discs I’ve got. Also I think I should...

Game that defines the console?

I've been wondering this to myself over the past week... Can you pick one game per console that defines that system for you? I don't mean the best game on the system, I mean the one that defines how you view the console in your mind? So, for the NES, I tend think of Ninja Gaiden as how I view that c...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

I didn't love Spider-Man: Homecoming, but I really enjoyed the new one. Good time, all around. Actually, considering I wasn't very excited for it or Toy Story 4 and both have been the most enjoyable times at the cinema lately, maybe I need to get over myself.

Steam sale. Anyone getting anything fun? Seems awfully quiet this year. Are we as a collective reaching 'Peak Backlog"?

Perhaps you already mentioned, and I've heard not great things about the remaster, but what caused you to go back to the original (I've only played the original as well)? I talk about it he...

Re: Comic Book Chatter

DC closing Vertigo Comics is sad news. Really down about this. The Vertigo imprint taught me to love comic books, not just superheroes. My appreciation of the medium as a whole is due to Vertigo and a big reason I branch out and try new things as often as I do. And Sandman basically re-wired my brai...

I've been playing a lot of Civ VI. I've been playing on some harder difficulties than I normally do (I'm garbage at these games, but I love them). I've gotten a few victory types I've never had before, so that's been nice. And, now, the big June update is out so I started a new game. I really do enj...

Re: Whatcha Been Watching?

Thanks, guys!

Also, has anyone seen the new MIB movie? Reviews are bad, a friend of mine liked it, wife wants to see it. We'll probably go but I'm not looking forward to it.
